Jobs in politics aren’t the most lucrative — even at the highest level — but they certainly will keep you comfortable. Since it’s the American taxpayers who cover the paychecks for their elected officials, their salaries are all public record. We decided to look through the salary information for employees of President Trump’s White House staff to see what some of those jobs are worth.
Take a look at some of the pay information for people currently working at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., as well as some comparisons to what the same positions paid during President Obama’s last year in the White House. All salary information was accurate as of July 2020.
